About James

A "dry slope" kid from Great Britain, Woods grew up skiing on artificial turf out in the "moors," as he likes to describe them. Great Britain's most popular freeskier, Woods turned heads when he netted bronze after qualifying No. 1 as an XG Aspen rookie in 2013. A good overall season in 2015 saw "Woodsy" finish 4th in the AFP rankings for slopestyle and take another X Games top-5. He had another good performance at X Games Aspen 2016, finishing 4th in Slopestyle.
